Vista crash when closing second CPU meter.

Post by SillyBlade »

Title kind of explains it all.

When I have 1 CPU meter open, then open a second and close one or the other, rainmeter crashes.

What I use; and a second one just a bit modified to be smaller for a different skin I'm making.

Code: Select all

[MeasureCPU]
Measure=CPU

[CPUGraph1]
Meter=Line
MeasureName=MeasureCPU
X=10r
Y=16
H=28
W=170
LineCount=1
LineColor=255, 255, 255, 30
AntiAlias=1

[CPUGraph2]
Meter=HISTOGRAM
MeasureName=MeasureCPU
X=0r
Y=0r
H=27
W=170
PrimaryColor=255, 255, 255, 20
AntiAlias=1

[CPU%]
MeasureName=MeasureCPU
Meter=STRING
X=0r
Y=-5r
FontColor=255, 255, 255
FontSize=8
FontFace=Verdena
AntiAlias=1
NumOfDecimals=1
Text="CPU Usage: %1%"

Does Rainmeter just crash, or do you get some type of notice from windows?

if you are using Vista or 7, I think I know what is happening.

It stops for a sec, then windows message comes up. And it is in Vista x64 SP2.

When I first opened the side one.

Ok, the errors I am seeing is new to me.

What I have run into is that if you attempt to stop certain processes, the UAC kicks in because it does not like it. Sometimes certain processes being stopped can look like a virus to the Windows UAC.

Unfortunately I have note experienced the issue you are seeing on my Vista 64 or 7 64 on my systems.

I will see if I can replicate the issue.
